About Five Mountain Vineyards

Five Mountain is set on a steep southeast facing slope in the Chehalem Mountains AVA, with a spectacular view of five volcanoes of the Cascade Range: Mount Hood (in the above photo), Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier, Mount Jefferson, and Mount Adams. This historic vineyard on loess soil (Laurelwood/windblown silt) was planted in 1978 by the Ponzi family and was purchased by Elk Cove in 2005. Five Mountain now totals 30 acres including the original 4.2 acres of old-vine Pommard clone Pinot Noir. Elk Cove has also added plantings of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling. Five Mountain is home to winemaker Adam Campbell’s family and the site of many summer gatherings where the view of Mount Hood is always a highlight.
